So I have a special fondness for Springjack Shepherd and Springjack Pasture in these kinds of decks. It can net you a lot of mana and life in a turn, and adds one more creature to go infinite with Ashnod's Altar and Eldrazi Displacer

is Training Grounds really worth it? I also don't really get what the big deal is with Dream Eater but that might just show what a bad blue mage I am.

I personally have problems with such an unflickerable as Walking Ballista being in a deck that's so much about flickering. Have you thought about Thornbite Staff for infinite damage instead? When it's not acting as a finisher it can give you more roon triggers.

Obelisk of Urd could be good. Maybe even freecastable, sometimes. Oof of a Springjack Shepherd

I have tried Trading Post in this deck, but it didn't make the cut because it does what other cards in the deck already do, but slower and with less relevance.

Springjack Pasture gives life/goats just as Trading Post does while still acting as a land and providing a method to turn goats into a burst of mana for the Angel Token win-condition.

Springjack Shepherd conjures an immediate goat-storm for the same mana cost and can double as a control card via a sudden wall of goats, and provides instant value when returned to the field from the graveyard via Emeria, The Sky Ruin (which can't target Trading Post) or Emeria Shepherd.

Trading Post in comparison, is a non-land card that drops a single goat per turn and has a heal that requires a discard (which is counter-intuitive to the base control strategy of matching your opponent card-for-card) and gives artifact versatility that is meaningless to this deck.

Hi PeachSchnaawps,

So unlike Red (Fanatic of Mogis) and Black (Gray Merchant of Asphodel) White didn't get a proper Devotion hitter, but before Devotion there was Chroma, which provided Light from Within. In your deck I'd definitely consider it. Another card is Springjack Shepherd, this would be more reliant on your other pumps but might be worth considering.

Sideboard wise Stony Silence, Rest in Peace and Leyline of Sanctity are usual suspects for White...

Hope this is of some help, have fun brewing your deck.

Springjack Shepherd, Light from Within, Brave the Elements, History of Benalia Thistledown Liege Wilt-Leaf Liege might all be of interest to you.

Crovax, Ascendant Hero Dovescape might also be interesting things to drop with nykthos.

I don't love Springjack Shepherd because tokens don't count toward devotion. Even though it has an etb it doesn't seem like it would necessarily net you all that many tokens/life (depending on your board state at the time obviously).I'd also maybe consider replacing Treasure Hunter with Open the Vaults for a couple reasons. First, more than half your artifacts can be hit by Sun Titan already. Plus, Open the Vaults returns enchantments as well, something you'd have trouble with outside of, again, Sun Titan. Playing mono-white, it'll benefit you more, on average, than it'll help other players. The consideration I suppose is if some of your artifacts care about their own cast triggers but I doubt it?

Also, and I realize this is more suggestions without removals, you don't have much in the way of non-creature removal. Things like Disenchant or Leave No Trace (especially good in a mono-colored deck because 4 of the options don't touch you). Even Valorous Stance could provide good utility. (I know you might have some creatures that destroy on etb but I'm on my phone so it's hard to check.)
